Generate a UUID or GUID

Anyone have a way to generate a UUID or GUID in Shortcuts? I want to make a request to the Todoist api but I need a unique id generated.

Thanks in advance, Scott

If you don’t have it by tonight I’ll take a crack at it, using one of these:

Ahhh so I need to a third party service. I’ve also used Scriptable to generate a UUID using a callback. I was hoping there was a way built in to Shortcuts.

Would this suffice?
